An account of\'hc attac'.  says fifteen Methodist and twelve English (s'frotestants and fourteen  French Catholic inissicnui'ics were in  tlie city last evening when Ihci-'r. nch  Catholic hail a quarrel with nn oili-  cial over a suit for the possession ot  property. , Great excitement prevailed en Friday. A mass meeting  was lield on Saturday and was followed hy a riot on Sunday, du-'ing  which the property of the Catholics  was burned.  ' Thc Protestants took refuge in thc  adjoining house of Mrf Kingman. Tho  house was turned and one of the King  in an' family killed.  ' The men of thc Methodist mirsiohs  aided    by the   Chinese  soldiers, took  Iheir   school girls to Chinese housed  in   thc   city and   brought Miss lloyt  and .lohn Kahn from  a hospital.  All  took refuge in Mid-River in a launth  which was  furnished  by  Chinese soldiers.     Thc launch waited  until Chinese   soldiers    brought the remaining  missionaries by  daylight on  Monday.  "'Ihe launch reached Kir. iang on Tuesday.

As  the  Zillah  May  had  taken  one  skin,  a San' Francisco newspaper,   the   Iv.'.  cuing Post,  says  it  is prab.a-l.lc thai  a revenue cutter will.be sent to seize  thc schooner  for  bringing a sealskin  into   United States waters.  How ab-  surd   is   the statement   that   the Ziillah May ma_; be seized'for landing,a  sicv member of her crew at Monterey  while engaged   in   sealing, is evident  to everyone     who. lias  the slightest  I nowledge of the sealing regulations.

In   the' Legislature yesterday     Mr.  lliiwU-M'nlhwuitc  resumed   the     de-  bale  on   the '   Master and   Servants  Act.    He said  this  was  a" act     to  protect work-nig  ni������n,  from fradulent  employers.      Leg.sl.it ion  had  hedged  round  every  interest of capital,   but  hil.or   was almost  unprotected.   This  was  a small. instalment   town-ids thc  immense arrears  due  them. ,Thc  pre  sent  system   of paying once a month  was  a hardship and  meant  practically  six weds* credit  for, work actually  done.

There  would  Le no     i.ece-sity to garni.'luc if payments   were made promptly.

'Vises ,in height t0 'the majestic" and  surpasses in stature, the "tallest     policeman  of New .York's  giant Broadway squad.   She was brought up in  a sort of artistic hohemianism        at  Ulribdal  by her father,   Charles XV.  of Sweden, and, ibeing'an only child,  was nude-much'of 1)5'  both  parents.  In    ;summer they passed  their days1  and long evenings on  the  water. The  King, who *������vas a clever artist,  painted,   and  the  women sang.  The king's  brothers     sometime:*     joined  them.  They aJl   had   wonderful   voices,     especially   Oscar,  the  present King,of  Sweden,  and  accompanied   themselves  with stringed     instruments, or even  with  the humble accordion.  The     Wedding day_'of  the princess  was a (ley  of mourning  to   the  father  and .liintlr.T mid to all, the neigli| tors  whom they invited  to beautiful  Ulri-  lisdal for  the ceremony,  and  iI seemed   to  them   the  beginning  of   the end  of  a reign      the   character   of  which  was sociably  tempered by  the king's  that   the   iiniighter  went to Copcnha-  li'_'i_:h and  wide culture.

FRIDAY,  WARCH 2,  190G. ���������  THE 1-1IYSICOLOGICAL ZERO.;  This name is ghcii,',hy certain writers, on  the subject,  to the temperature at which  the human,;body feels  'no .sensation     of heat or cold.       It  might be supposed  that it would,co-  .��������� - incidc'in  all cases with that of   tho  ,'hotly ntS'^lf,  but, according to, the recent experiments of Mr. Maurelj       a  French j,hys_olog!.st,  it is several dcr  grces  lower, and varies with  the nature of  the surrounding medium, being lower  in  air  than  water.       Mr.  Maurel  determined his "physiological  zero" by immersing his body in baths  of different temperatures; but he,-does  not seem 10  havi-  measured his own  body surface temperature directly, relying, instead, on theirccords of tnca  surcinent  made  by divers earlier authorities,   This   and  the  fact that he'  has  neglected   to  ta'-'e' various necessary    precautions  makes his results   j  somewhat  doubtful, in the opinion of  'Mr.    Hjenry     Pieron, . who criticises  them thus  in the Revue Scientifi^uc:  "Mr.      Maurel placed himself      in  batch of water or air- at divers tempera tur.es,   and   no tori   between   what'  degrees  he  realized  the.. : soughh   for  state of indifference. He did the same  for  the variations of  temperature, of  the 'clothes, which, he calls the 'sub- I  ' vestal tennporuturn,' and for ilie tem'-  pcrature ol thc body in .bed, which he  names  'ouih-iliai   temperature.'  And he  Jlnds  that  the cutaneous physicologi-  cal   zero  lies practically between 3Oi  degrees    and 33 degrees (8C degrees  j  and  91 degrees  F); bet,even seeks to  |  differentiate the trunk and the lower I  limbs,'whose physiofogical zero    he .;  finds to l_e slightly lower...In general  the range  of zero is  1 degree  (2 degrees to '1.; degrees F.)  "He also concludes  that there is a  relation between the physiological zero and  the surface  temperature     of   ���������  each  organ,  which latter is-.alnoiit 3  -degrees (5*  degrees F.)  higher than   j  zero.   Rut were any c?w experiments  necessary to show that the sensation :  oT indifference depends on the ^-rf-ice  temperature of the body?  "The same  medium  should  appear  icy  or broiling to the  fever patient,  as his surface temperature o&cilla'tes.  And .as thc sensations of heat or cold  correspond     to    an exit or entrance  ���������of licit,   the contact assures  thermic  cJiuiplJbrir.'m should *also assure      a  'sfate of.sensorial indifference.  "At first sight it would appear odd  that one should e.vi-erience a sensation of heat when the external _ temperature i-_ identical with his- own  surTacc ternperaturc. * 'And,' in fact,  exact experiments in thermo-esthesio-  mctry ha\c shown that' in certain  spots on the hand, for instance, a  drop of water at the,same temperature is not felt. J3ut the, surface tern  perature is only a cross between 'the  internal'and external temperature, ad  apt-ing itself to this double influence  /by a capricious regulating mechanism  under thc dir.-ct hut obscure action  of  the nervous system.  "Hence tlie phenomena ' of calorific  radiation toward thc exterior o** interior, which provolie our sensation  of heat or cold, may respond to man  erous and imperfectly, determined factors, influenced by pressure, humidity, etc., fiom outside, and ��������� by bodily chemical actions, the conductihili-  ty of lhc tisvsucs, etc., from inside.  "Thus, though lather astonishing-,.  Mj-'ircl's conclusion that the physiological /.ceo * is lower ' than tire- surface temperature can,not be attacked  except on the basis of a new e.vpero^  ment.M  ____9I>-������-U-31  anaimo) Ltd  DO YOU KNOW t  WM.

Mr. Hagan states in his fitter that  judgment was given for defendant  with costs. Our report is perfectly  correct. Judgment was given for the  plaintiff and a contra account of $59  was-,presented by defendant. This was  for the hire of rigs etc., an expense  the defendant, claimed he was put to  through an error on the part of plain  tiff. His Honor ruled several items  on the account overcharged, but considering the defendant had been put  to trouble.and expense, allowed a hill  of HO on the plaintiff. The consequence was that both Parties were  called upon V' Pa.' $'u i'"1-! to defray  their  own  court  costs.  Walter* &  Akcnhead  by tlie fiithiiiess of the boy's face.

By      that-  time Matsuda  who-was  Jjcnind-   the  whole time,   had  an   opportunity   to  lay  all his  traps and   tricks,       and  they     were   many, but Sine showed  himself  fully etfiial. to- the occasion,  and repeatedly' broke holds which Uirj  Jap put on him, showing to the relief    -of his    rritnds-that even if .the  Japdid..,   get-the a'dcsuitagc .of   him  twice  hi. tlie mixup,   he was       still  fresh  and sturdy, and also confident.

The   fail was at once diluted  by the  Jap and  his    friends, .they claim-ing  that  it was a roll  from .shoulder to  (Shoulder.    Amid   the confusion       Mr.  Fullerlon,   one   or  the 'judges,' came  forward  audi stated  that  he did  not  agree   with   the referee,  as  the     "fall  was not clear enough.
